The Tiny House Jamboree, held August 5-7 2016 at the campus of the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, featured 24 speakers, 34 tiny house building companies, and even a wedding (“no tangible gifts,” of course).
I couldn’t make it, but thanks to the magic of social media, can share in a little bit of the action. Here are my favorite Instagram posts from the event.
I put as many photos of the houses as I could—that’s what we all care about, right? Some of them are more functional, some downright awesome. Windowshop along with me. I also included a few photos of people and dogs to give you a taste for the community shenanigans. Enjoy!
I hope they made it!
More than 40,000 people went to the first Tiny House Jamboree in 2015. This year, more than 60,000 showed up.
And more than 50 tiny house builders, too!
Tiny house fans peeked through any available viewpoint.
This roof can be raised when you’re parked, lowered for travel.
Plenty of people, sure, but it looks like you could squeeze in a few more. Tiny house party!
Love the porthole window—like the side of a ship.
Another nautically-themed tiny house—is that a trend? The roofline evokes waves, and so does the name (the Pequod was the ship in Moby Dick).
Always buying funny t-shirts is the key to living a life free of regrets.
Many interesting roof lines at the Jamboree. Here’s another one, from Sprout Tiny Homes.
Mostly fetches tools…not so great with a nail gun.
Utopian Villas is based in Oak Creek, Wisconsin.
Love the distressed metal look.
Another convert to the Tiny House momement.
Behr Paints sponsored the 2016 Tiny House Jamboree.
I promised you a wedding—here it is! Not a great pic, but they look happy. The couple, BA Norrgard and John Breen, were married on the front steps of the EcoCabins mini chapel. For a honeymoon suite, I guess they had their pick!
So much natural light in this design by Escape Traveler.
The folks at Robinson Residential drove down from Regina, Saskatchewan to show off this design.
Tiny House expert Dee Williams (author of The Big Tiny) was the event’s keynote speaker.
